Skymark Airlines is considering sale and leaseback financing on some of its Airbus A380 future deliveries.

The Japanese carrier placed an order in February 2011 for an initial four aircraft of the type equipped with Rolls Royce's Trent 970-84 engines. It added two A380s to its backlog at last year's Paris air show.

The sale and leaseback could cover up to three A380s, according to Skymark. The first aircraft is planned for July 2014, the second in December that year.

According to Flightglobal's Ascend Online database, the remaining deliveries are scheduled for September 2015, May 2016, April and June 2018.
